I've been known to make this recipe twice a week—it's so delicious. I like to call it "sticky chicken" since the slightly sweet sauce of honey, lemon juice and hers nicely coats the chicken thighs.


  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs (3 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano


  1. Place the chicken in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Combine the lemon juice, honey, oil, garlic and oregano; pour over chicken.
  2. Bake, uncovered at 375° for 45 minutes or until a thermometer reads 180°, basting occasionally with pan juices.
